    i would say the standardized test scores are your weakest points. i would think +2100 be sufficient.

    jain126,
    As a heads up Case does not offer a major in general studies. You can come in as an undeclared major lots of students do I can't remember the number it's at least 15%. You can also say that you're interested in math and change your mind later without any problems. The 25th percentile SAT score for this years entering class is 1820. If possible I would suggest retaking the SAT's I think you could get in Early with less than a 2100 maybe more like 1900-2000 would be a good target score.
